Should I consider placement of new or existing trees when planning for my future solar array?
When building your new home, planting a tree in the yard or adding smaller trees along your landscaping helps to quickly beautify your property. When adding trees to your property (or choosing to keep existing trees), consider the size of the tree in 25-30 years. Could it potentially shade your roof or ground solar array causing loss of production in the future? Our designers and engineers can typically work around minor shading issues and build an array which meets your production goals. Keep in mind you can always contact us before planting to walk the site with you and provide our recommendations for the best placement of your new tree(s).
